Thanks for the proof reading...

The djed pillar has been a real puzzle.
At first, I thought it was responsible for forming the plasma snake in the tube. My friend and I spent like 2 years trying all sorts of djed configurations without any success. Made a lot of cool plasma formations, but no snake.
I then remembered something my Dad used to say to me. He'd say, "Willy, when all else fails, read the instructions".
So, in frustration, we decided to 'read the instructions' and take a look at the hieroglyphics.
That was what led us to a description of the'day/night bulb', which I believed was related to Alchemy - Mercury (Sun) and Sulphur (Moon).
It was while testing a mercury tube (we had been using neon and argon), that we stumbled on to the plasma snake in the tube (due to mercury's odd behavior of repelling from earth ground) and the subsequent connection to the Electric Universe and the Plasma Focus Device (aka the lotus flower).
Since then, the djed pillar, except for the arms on it (which are required to electro-staticly push/lift/repel the plasma snake off the bottom and into the middle of the tube), has been an extraneous component - looking for a reason to be there.
I have had some recent ideas based on some information I read about sonoluminescence and lower hybrid mode waves in the ionosphere.
Sonoluminescence is referred to as 'a star in a jar'. It relates to acoustic cavitation and gas bubbles collapsing on themselves with great force (with heat bursts of 5,000 degrees or more).
I thought, that's interesting, I wonder if there is a place for that phenomenon anywhere in the plasma snake?
And then I thought, maybe its what creates the eye of the snake. I believe that the snakes head is analogous to the heliosphere (i.e. the thin plasma envelope that encompasses the entire solar system). Maybe the djed is somehow connected to a sonoluminescence like phenomenon that creates the eye in the snake (i.e. like the sun in the heliosphere).
As I read more about sonoluminescence and cavitation, I realized that cavitation (which is critical to sonoluminescence) only occurs in liquids, not gases... Humm... dead end....
Ouch, I was sure I was on to something. Considering the similarity between single bubble sonoluminescence and inertial confinement fusion (i.e. implosion), and the connection between sound and light (Genesis I "And God said (spoke, sound, acoustic vibration), Let there be light: and there was light").
But how could plasma be made to cavitate without the surface tension or viscosity of a liquid - gas does not cavitate?
It was then I found some information about Lower Hybrid Mode Waves in the upper atmosphere and how they can create cavitation bubbles in plasma (as envelope solitons - thank you Cashus).
In a plasma, the electric and magnetic forces act like viscosity in liquids and allow for acoustic like cavitation effects to occur in the ionosphere (i.e. space plasma).
Lower Hybrid Mode Waves occur when a plasma stream is modulated by an electromagnetic vibration. The electromagnetic vibration (cycle) causes the ions and free electrons in the plasma stream to move in opposite directions - due to the effect of the moving magnetic field on their opposite electric charges - which shears the plasma stream, creating envelope solitons (i.e. plasma cavitation/bubbles).
Solitons (solitary waves) are persistent waves that regenerate themselves - like a smoke ring traveling through the air maintaining its form by constantly folding in on itself.
They are formed by collisions - abrupt events - that create chaos. The soliton is a self organizing phenomenon that spontaneously emerges out of the chaos.
They can survive for long periods of time without dissipating (losing their form) - where they can act like particles.
The plasmoid (snake head) at the end of the Birkland current (snake body) is one example of a solition, where the rapid collapse of the Birkland current at the Z-pinch (snake's neck) creates a chaotic soup of electromagnetic forces, gas particles and ions, which spontaneously creates a plasmoid-soliton (the interest thing I find about the plasma snake is that it is a continuous or steady state phenomenon - a stable low density plasma focus device).
Add to that, the recent information I got about the djed:

The rising sun? Carried by the Djed? Make the sunrise last eternal? What if the djed is somehow creating lower hybrid mode waves in the plasma stream that is causing an acoustic like cavitation in the plasmoid (head of the snake) that creates and sustains an envelope soliton (in the eye of the snake).
It's something to think about...
And the (psychic) hits and synchronicities keep coming... Fun stuff...
